Genetic Diversity and Geographic Distributions of Borrelia Burgdorferi Sensu Lato Species: Vector-Host-Pathogen Interaction and Association with Clinical Manifestation
Dr. Rudenko is a research scientist with 34 years of active research in fields of molecular biology, microbiology and parasitology, with extended expertise in fields of ecology, epidemiology, distribution and monitoring of tick-borne diseases, particularly Lyme borreliosis, vector-host-pathogen interactions, search for novel antimicrobial peptides and for candidates for anti-parasitic vaccines. The main interest of research is genetic diversity of the causative agent of human Lyme disease, the spirochetes from Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex, in Europe and in the United States and their impact in global public health. Recently, the questions of spirochetes infectivity, pathogenicity, survival behaviors, and response to antibiotic treatment or capability to transform into persisting forms that lead to relapsing or chronic diseases became of major interest of research.
ILADS is a nonprofit, international, multi-disciplinary medical society, dedicated to the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of Lyme and its associated diseases. ILADS promotes understanding of Lyme through research and education and strongly supports physicians and other health care professionals dedicated to advancing the standard of care for Lyme and its associated diseases.
